Ethanol As A Fuel Of The Future

Ethanol As A Fuel Of The Future

Many analysts consider ethanol as the fuel of the future. Ethanol has proven its power potential and hybrid cars have come up in the market. But to gain popularity in masses, the costs of the fuel need to be brought down. In addition, the trend of its cultivation must be encouraged. The fuel can not succeed unless it is able to surpass the challenges faced by the production cost and relatively low mileage.

Alternative Energy – Geothermal Energy

Alternative Energy – Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is the thermal energy which core of the earth retains. It is released in the form of hot liquid called magma through natural channels. We can install geothermal power plants on natural channels. We can also create channels after analyzing the under crust magma deposits. It is cheaper and efficient form of alternative energy. It is most environment friendly as compared to other forms of energy. We must go for it as early as possible because our current reserves of conventional energy (fossil fuels) are depleting rapidly.

How Does Geothermal Energy Work

How Does Geothermal Energy Work

The geothermal energy is the heat extracted from the earth. The source of this heat can be the earth’s center or the sun. This heat can be used in heating homes, generating electricity and boiling water.
